2,500 Movies Challenge | Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) (Reblog)

I love old movies. On the hunt for a recommendation and came across this movie review of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" (1982) starring Steve Martin (of "Saturday Night Live" fame). This blog is published by "Dave" and he plans to review a total of 2500 movies. This reblogged movie review is Number 1060. It was posted in 2010. As of June 2014, he was still posting! So much for setting yourself an achievable goal.

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid


FYI. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is available as an Amazon Instant Video.

If You Could Create A Monster (Reblog)

This cool post is a reblog from my fellow blogger and friend who is participating in a writing challenge.  It's perfect for the Halloween holiday!

Here are my responses to the questions, if I were going to create a monster.


What Does The Monster Look Like?

My monster would have to be green. It's a throwback from that old movie The Exorcist where the possessed girl puked up green vomit. That scene got stuck in my brain and ever since then, that puke color green is associated with monsters. Even though it was the devil. In my mind, devil and monster are the same thing!  But SHE would also be attractive or alluring.  That way people would at first want to approach her.



How Big Is The Monster?
Really huge! Way bigger than an ordinary person because it would give the monster a sense of believing SHE is too big to be overcome. Like the American banks.  (Sorry.  Bad joke.)  That way when the humans take her down, it will be a surprise! “Yeah! That's right! Take that! Bet you didn't even see us coming!!”   :)



What Is Unique About The Monster?
The monster would have a combination of traits borrowed from the X-Men mutants (because I'm not very original).  Not sure what combination, but it would be definitely be able to morph or shape-shift.  Although because it's so big, even though it can change its shape, it still wouldn't be so easy to go run and hide.



What Does The Monster Eat?

Humans! 

Monsters who eat fruits and veggies don't scare nobody! 



Where Does It Sleep?
The monster would have to sleep some place that is either extremely cold or extremely hot, because that would make it more of a challenge for the humans to try to get rid of it while it's resting up for the next day of ravaging the human race.



What would the monsters be called?

My monsters would be called Cannibellas. Well because they're flesh-eating monsters that are also female, and they're not really that ugly or crude to look at. Sort of like the sirens in Greek mythology. They could lure people, especially men.  But because they are so huge, most men would probably run from them!! :)

History of India : The Significance of 12 September | dracula fun (Reblog)

My comments: The blog publisher says the incident is minimized in the record of history. But it says they gave land grants to the families of the slain soldiers, so – in my mind - the authority gave credit where credit was due. It's better to not get any mention in history than to serve faithfully and then have your family disregarded as if you didn't do anything at all. The family who lost a member who died as a valiant soldier more often than not probably depended on that person for their own survival. It's the least the country's leaders could do.

History of the Indian army (as in India, not Native Americans).  Interesting history.



NOTE:  Comments above were previously shared in a Facebook group called History Buffs.

Create ~ Cook ~ Capture: Are Food Trucks Safe? (REBLOG)

Are food trucks safe? Depends on who you ask?  We are a house divided.  My husband and I would not answer this question the same.  It is a great way to picnic without needing to pack up your own food.

Hmmm?  Thinking of food trucks as a convenient way to picnic has never occurred to me.  On the plus side, all of my food truck experiences have been very satisfactory.  So I agree with blogger's conclusions.

Ever consider that books you throw away might be of value to a little child? Learn more about this program.  'Aham Bhumika' is an NGO, a group of like minded people based in Bhopal, a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. Striving for the betterment of the underprivileged in rural areas of India, they frequently run "Donate a Book" campaigns.

Most Beautiful Islands: Croatia-Dalmatian Islands (REBLOG)

So very pleased to share this link about the Croatia-Dalmatian Islands. Found the World's Most Beautiful Islands (mostbeautifullisland.blogspot.com) blog a couple of years back. It appears that neither the blog or the Facebook page has been updated since 2012, but no matter as the information provided about the most beautiful islands in the world is enough to whet your appetite and make you hunger and thirst for more. Never been to Dalmatia but one reference to this place in the New Testament and ever since it has been on my wish list of  "Places I'd Like to Go.

When the Apostle Paul* was preparing for his execution in Rome, he sent final instructions and words of encouragement to Timothy, a young man he referred to as his “son in the faith”. He told him what he expected of him and what needed to be done to carry on the missionary efforts. In what is believed to be one of his final letters to the young minister, he made mention of his “other son”, Titus. He said that Titus was on his way to Dalmatia to continue spreading the gospel message. Just that one mention of the place and my heart was captivated. 

(*REF:  Paul and Friends)
  • If you have ever been to Dalmatia, please share some of your experiences?  Provide comments below or let's discuss a guest post.  Thanks!  Thanks!!  Thanks!!

Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background ... (Reblog)

The word "economy" can be traced back to the Greek word "oikonomos" meaning ‘one who manages a household.’ ... : Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background

* * * *
Image credit: © 2014 National Days : East Meets West Day



Jaro Berce's blog, Leadership By Virtue, is a blog about his book by that name.  Just recently started following it and picked up on this because it was listed as one of the “Popular Posts”. Indeed discussing the economy is always “popular”. ☺  Those so-called “discussions” can be downright ruthless sometimes. We're talking serious kung fu fighting! Yet and still, in my opinion, gaining even an introductory or elementary knowledge and understanding of economics has its value. 

It's also interesting to note how West meets East, i.e. how westerners make application of eastern philosophy and principles.

Scota: Mother of the Scottish People | Ancient History Encyclopedia

History is a topic that almost anybody can write about, if they know what they're talking about, and make it extremely interesting and informative for other people (like me) who have no knowledge of the facts whatsoever.



One of the blogs I like or follow is The Freelance History Writer, published by history lover, Ms. Susan Abernethy.  She started out writing about women's history and then decided to diversify.

Ms. Abernathy's love for this subject was recognized and appreciated by a reputable non-profit organization, and she was asked to write a guest post for them. She holds the honor of being the first guest blogger for Ancient History Encyclopedia. The title of her guest post is Scota: Mother of the Scottish People.  At her own blog this post was tagged “DNA analysis”. 

  • Do you know who discovered that DNA could be categorized into 7 basic groups?  
  • What do you know about "Lia Fail"?  


This historical adventure really took me places.
Thanks Ms. Abernathy!  :)
